Karachi: Jan 15, 2014

Pakistan cricket fell fall into further chaos on Wednesday with a two-member divisional bench of the Islamabad High Court reinstating Zaka Ashraf as Chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).

Zaka had filed an appeal against his dismissal by the single bench of the IHC headed by Justice Shaukat Siddiqui in July last year.

Justice Siddiqui, while ruling the election of Ashraf as mala fide, had removed him as Chairman with immediate effect after which the government appointed Najam Sethi as acting Chairman of the board.

However, the two-member bench, while restoring Ashraf, also only accepted parts of the appeal filed by the PCB against Justice Siddiqui’s order to stop Sethi from exercising his full powers.

There was no official explanation from the board but its legal advisor, Tafazzul Rizvi said the position would be clear in a few hours time when the full judgement copies are available to them.

“Right now the position is that the two member bench announced it had accepted the appeals of Zaka Ashraf, the PCB and the ministry of inter provincial coordination but we will have to see what is the operative part of the judgement,” he told PTI.

The judgement today has only added to the confusion in Pakistan cricket but with no one aware as to who is the Chairman now.
